We had Gentry as our guide. She was very knowledgeable regarding the areas history, climatology & geography. It was the perfect length tour. We never felt rushed, and got to see quite a bit. It was definitley worth the price and we would definitely recommend it.

BEST DAY EVER!!!! Thanks Dylan!!!

What a perfect day! My daughter and I wanted to get out of the city, and closer to the mountains, and what a way to go! Dylan, our guide, was beyond knowledgeable of the history of our traveled area, we learned SO MUCH, as well as just being the coolest and nicest guy! Our stops were fun, and every view was like a postcard! It was only five hours, so not too long, but just enough time to take it all in. Dylan was also such a careful driver, and just a lot of fun to talk to. I can’t recommended this excursion enough! Thanks again Dylan!!

Perfect Half Day Taste of the Rockies
Rick_S
, May 2021
We stayed 3 nights in downtown Denver without a car and wanted to get out of town and enjoy some nature one day. This tour was perfect. The meeting place was easy to find on foot. Our tour guide Jed was excellent, driving us safely to some Rocky Mountain beauty with witty and interesting narrative the entire way. We especially appreciate his friendliness and willingness to accommodate everyone’s needs.
